Fugs and Fines: Katching Up With Kim Kardashian’s Maternity Wear


I hate that tabloids are making fun of Kim’s pregnant body. It’s bad form even if she isn’t pregnant, but doubly so because she is. That is douchey in the extreme — not least because, while people have no control over how they gain weight anyway, women who are gestating ESPECIALLY do not get a say. I’ve been there; I’m sympathetic to watching your body create weird new shapes, and when you’re curvy to begin with, it’s going to surprise you even more. You grow how you grow, so to make someone feel like she isn’t ripening with child in the way that you had hoped and imagined is the height of suckitude. A BABY IS IN THERE TRYING TO GET BIGGER. Leave her body alone. (Mark my words, it’s all going to make her SO freaked out that it will lead to a cover story eight weeks after the birth about Kim’s “inspirational” story of losing 40 pounds in six weeks via some crackpot regimen of QuickTrim and twice-daily workouts and cutting out chewable food, which the story will attempt to imply is actually reasonable, and that we should all expect to drop baby weight that fast, which: No).

But Kim is trying so aggressively hard to get through this gestation period while being Fashionable with a capital F — or, you know, her version of Fashionable — that it’s hard to ignore her outfits, because she often ends up right back in her usual non-pregnant neighborhood of Fugly. Some of this stuff is fine and some of it is hilarious and some of it, like the above, is pure WTF. You can leave the body alone while still scratching your head at what’s covering it, and that is the line we aim to walk: focusing on the clothes that would be just as crazy on any living, breathing human, regardless of what’s happening in the womb. So let’s DO THIS. Gently, and with the right balance of empathy and emphatic nos.

    Poor sweet Kim. I wonder if she knows how her Q scores would soar if she just went out once with some good old maternity Sevens & a cute Destination Maternity shop. And some flip flops. I would stand and applaud. I would actually stand up and clap when I saw that photo.

      YES. This! Buy yourself the comfy pants and shirt and a pair of flip flops and I will hug you and say, that’s right! Be comfortable!

        Personally I was relieved to see a pair of flats on her by slide #13. Yay! I was beginning to think she goes everywhere in stilettos which is saying something for a pregnant woman of her height & curvaceousness. Although I don’t care for her celebutantness – I love to see a woman celebrate her curves. About time.

          I don’t think she is “celebrating her curves”. If she were, we’d have seen a naked preggo pic. She can’t do anything without photographing herself. She said Kanye isn’t “letting her wear maternity clothes”. But their choices for her are so incredibly unflattering.

      Couldn’t agree more! And ditto to just being relieved to see her in flats by the end.

    My problem with her maternity wear is it all looks so uncomfortable! Girl, pregnancy makes you feel uncomfortable enough with the morning sickness, the heartburn, the backaches…why are all of your clothes so tight it looks like you can barely breathe? You already have a hard enough time breathing because your internal organs are being smushed around in there to make room for baby!

    • Mouse

      I TOTALLY agree! After about six weeks (!) of being pregnant I couldn’t stand to have ANYthing tight around my midsection – I don’t know how she’s doing it!

      Ditto on the heels – I gave up on them around the same time and I’m only NOW just getting back into them and my son is one! (and my shoe size is now a drag queen-esque 11…thanks, pregnancy!)

      If there is one time in your life where no one will judge you on wearing your frumpiest, cushiest, jersey/cotton/flannel sweats – it’s during pregnancy – take advantage of it!! :)

        I sympathise, I’m 38 wks pregnant and it’s hard accommodating a different body shape, but amazingly there are fashionable things out there that aren’t so unflattering and damned fug. Look into it, KK.

          I just don’t get why she doesn’t just wear maternity clothes. These all look like she just went up a size (or not) in regular clothes. Embrace your pregnant self! Pregnant women are lovely.

      That. I think the press wouldn’t care about her weight if she looked comfortable in her clothes. Remember Kate HUdson? She was enormous and her pregnancy lasted about 12 months, yet no one was mean to her.

        Karen, we are unable to place you with Counselor Firth this summer as we’ve found your stash of photo of him and your dvd of P&P seems to be permanently stuck on the scene of him diving into the lake. As we have strict rules about counselors and campers INTERMINGLING (if you get our drift) we have placed you with Counselor Dan Stevens cabin. We hope this won’t be a problem.

      I agree about the mustard leather dress. And the jacket. If she were not pregnant I would think she looked sensational. But god, she looked uncomfortable. Girl, put on some leggings, a cute, roomy tunic top, and some flats. You’ll feel so much better!

    She seriously must be so exhausted, too. I really actually do feel bad for her. Being pregnant is hard enough, without trying to act like you’re not pregnant after everyone knows you’re pregnant.

  5. lindsay

    i also feel bad for her, because she obviously feels like her life precludes the use of sweats and giant man shirts while gestating. i think she should tell everyone she needs to be on bed rest then just spend the rest of her pregnancy chilling with her family and staying out of the public eye.

    • MKKS
      0

      This is possibly the perfect solution. She generates sympathy while retiring from public view in order to enjoy maternity sweats & ice cream & Tums, and then can reappear with her “6 weeks / liquid diet” Us Weekly story.

      Wait … something just occurred to me. She’s going to be hitting her 3rd trimester just in time for summer. I’m sort of … worried about that. I’ve had two summer babies and I basically spent the end of pregnancy on my side on a sofa sans pants. Somehow I feel like the only bit of that Kim is going to do is the “sans pants.”

    Boy does she have a difficult body to dress, and add in a pg belly . . . I wonder why she is still trying to define her waist with those pencil skirts, and the tucking in, and the pants? Not flattering, and as A.J. said, looks so uncomfortable! Having said all that, I totally agree with Heather, leave the poor woman alone.

    • Jessica
      0

      YES! This has been my thought on her maternity wear too – she DOES have a tricky body to dress (when not pregnant) and her way to deal with that was to accentuate her little tiny waist… now that her waistline is on hiatus I think she can’t figure out what to do….

      • Jen S 2.0

        Heeee @ “waistline is on hiatus.” Also, “hair commas” for the win.

      • pantsonfire
        0

        So, yeah. I think those tight leather dresses/pencil skirts are the worst possible thing she can be wearing. I have no beef with a pregnant lady accentuating her belly, but pulling the waist of a VERY tight leather pencil skirt up over the belly is not the way to do it. It is aesthetically displeasing to me. It makes her look like an insect — an ant or maybe a bee – because it shortens the torso and magnifies the lower half/abdomen.

        In contrast, I think she looks terrific in that graphic dress with the leather jacket. I want to say it was slide 10? The one with the diamond pattern on the lower half.

        • Scanderoon

          I, too, loved the diamond-print dress… EXCEPT for the crotch diamond. If the pattern fell in a different place the whole thing would have been lovely!

    I have a nicer version of Jane Austen Camp #1 and it looks fantastic (granted, it’s not off the shoulder like Kim’s). Every time I wear it someone asks me where I bought it. That’s just a bad color for that style dress.

    • Frances

      I think I would like your dress. I *almost* like her dress. Hike up those shoulders and a better colour and I think it would be pretty and comfy. What more could a pregnant lady ask for?

      • pantsonfire
        0

        My problem with the dress on Kim is the ridiculous amount of cleavage. Boobs are fine. Great, even. But I think it’s too much. That soft jersey knit off the shoulder business is not providing enough support for her pregnant boobs.

    I agree with you completely! I don’t know why people are giving her such a hard time, she was curvy before pregnancy and you add that to the fact shes really short, there is no way shes not going to look like a fertility statue! She does dress like a crazy lady most of the time though.

    If the Kardashian’s are looking to expand their brand – and it seems they always are – I would watch the hell out of a show where these girls are made to go to Austen camp.

    And then bitterly resent how they don’t see how awesome it is because they are too busy complaining they have no false eyelashes or something.

    From the neck up, she looks great. Seriously, she’s never looked prettier. From the neck down, yeesh. I’ve never been pregnant, but a lot of my friends have and they found super cute maternity wear (seriously, some of it was so adorable I almost considered buying maternity wear) very easily. Why is she so intent on making herself look so bad?

      I was wanting to say the same thing. I generally like her make-up, but her face and hair look really great.

      She looks so uncomfortable I just want to be nice. I try on maternity stuff at Target accidentally all the time when looking at the sales racks. I’d probably own some if any of it fit.

    Her pregnancy style is actually worse than her non-pregnancy style. If that’s possible. I don’t know if color would help, but lord it couldn’t hurt. Black, white, and beige are no one’s friends. And what’s with the babydoll dresses? Every day some new picture of her comes out and I cringe. She just looks godawful all the time now (and I’m speaking only of the fabric covering her, not of her general size or shape–I had twins, I was visible from space, so I would never judge a pregnant woman on her size).

    You know, besides that diamond on her crotch in slide 10, the form fitting maxi is really the best look for her, and definitely the most comfortable when you are pregnant.

    What annoys me most about her look is SHE is dressing herself, presumably stating ‘oh you silly pregnant women with your elastic waists, watch me do this in regular clothes! I’m above needing comfort while my womb grows!’ Ugh, just let go of it already, because it just makes me cringe when I see anything cinched over her belly! My post pregnant, loose-skinned belly doesn’t like the sight of those, nevertheless when that space was occupied with a baby!

  16. Amberoni13

    I am less mad at the suit coat in #2? It’s got an interesting neckline that does not give me fear of nips or something falling into her cleavage, and the layers are kind of flattering?

    It’s just, as Stacy and Clinton would say, you have to choose clothes to fit the body you HAVE. If you have, say, a PREGNANT body, choose clothes that fit that body best. The size and shape are not something you can control so very much every day (without crazy shapers or lifestyle diet/exercise changes or surgery), but you can control how you present that size and shape, and Kim K just does not seem to realize that you can’t dress as if you have a completely different body without CONSEQUENCES. Uncomfortable ones. Chafing and public ridicule apparently included, especially when you go after fame so very hard for so very long.

    • marlie

      THIS. She clearly can’t dress the way that she did before she was preggo. She needs to realize that, and dress the body that she has.

  17. marlie

    Agreed about the comments about her preggo body. But the CLOTHES… There’s a problem when the clothes are just plain ugly, and would be just plain ugly on any pregnant OR non-pregnant woman.

    My only other comment is that maybe someone should tell her that silhouettes that are OK on her in her non-pregnant state might not be the most flattering while she’s gestating, and that it’s OK to change things up a bit for now.

    Credit where it’s due… she does look pretty darn good in the leather dress.

  18. Carolina Girl

    I, too, have stopped reading the coverage about her pregnant body. It’s wrong and unfair, and what surprises me the most is that a lot of it comes from other women. I had a baby 8 3/4 years ago and, while I am now below my pre-baby weight, the changed shape of my body means that I am now a dress size above where I was. So I say let her body change and do whatever it’s going to do.
    My issue with her is the clothes. She’s gone on record to say that Kanye won’t LET her wear maternity clothes. What??? She’s got a 40-week pass to wear comfortable shoes and loose clothes and she chooses to spend it stuffing herself into tight leather clothes. FUGLY tight leather clothes at that.

    • SugarMagnolia
      0

      Oh my goodness, he won’t *let* her wear maternity clothes?! Does he want her to be stuck in unflattering and uncomfortable clothes for 40 weeks? Or is he in denial about the existence of the Babye? Because not wearing maternity clothes does not, in fact, make you not pregnant.

      Kanye aside, my problem with the clothes is that they are so uncomfortable-looking. Even if Kim herself doesn’t want to wear “maternity” clothes for whatever reason, surely there are more comfortable and flattering non-maternity clothes. She isn’t the first famous pregnant woman, and many of the very fashionable women before her managed to look comfortable and stylish while still gaining a significant amount of weight and undergoing major body changes.

  19. Leslie

    She looks terrible. She is obviously very uncomfortable being pregnant. Her expression in most of her recent pictures is evidence enough. I do not think she fully thought this thing through. Her whole reason for existence is to promote/surgically enhance her sexy figure and this pregnancy is really gumming up the works. I suspect her sisters had an easier time being pregnant. She needs to step out of the limelight and take it easy before she stumbles on her stilettos and harms her baby. Being sexy 24/7 is exhausting and unnecessary.

    Amberoni, I agree with you about the coat in #2. I actually love the hell out of it. It’s both crazy and kind of amazing.

    The first dress, besides being a terrible color and fabric, reminded me heartily of Kirstie Alley’s pre-Dancing-With-The-Stars wardrobe. There is SO much cute maternity wear out there. And Kim actually has the money to afford an entirely new maternity wardrobe. DO IT KIM. Maternity wear is made for your exact state of being. You will have plenty of time to wear leather and crazy parabola skirts (good one, btw) after the babye (also, good one) comes. Hell, I’m only 3 months along and I’ve already ditched the regular clothes for pants with good ole’ cotton spandex belly panels. Ahhhhh.

    Is there some kind of law against empire-waist dresses? When I was late into my pregnancy, I LIVED in them. They gave me some figure definition while still allowing for BOOBS and BELLY and made me feel really, really pretty. It’s not like an empire-waist dress has to be made out of boring fabric; she could totally do leather if she wanted.

    • qwertygirl
      0

      Empire waists are a godsend to pregnant women (or they were to me, anyway), and they should embrace them. I think what’s bad about this one is that it’s connected to those hideous off the shoulder sleeves and covering up that not-quite-hidden bizarre foundation garment in the boobular region. Also, being a maxi, and combined with the sleeves, it has a very “I’m on my way to a Renaissance Fair” look about it, which in itself makes it completely mockable. All she needs is a crown of daisies and she’d be a shoo in to play the lead in a remake of Monty Python’s “Search for the Holy Grail.”

    I do feel for her regarding the intense bitchery about her body. I’m six months along and getting a lot of “wow you’re huge for only 6 months” comments despite the fact that I’ve only put on 6lbs so far. I quip back “I was huge to start off with” but I do wonder what gives folks the right to say stuff like that.

    I don’t like any of these outfits though – they’re either uncomfortable OR unflattering OR both. She doesn’t even have to go into boho-floaty maxi territory which I guess would make her feel bigger, but hey – that is what SPANDEX JERSEY was made for. Jersey is your friend, Kim! You can wear stuff as tight and clingy as you like but still be comfy!!!

      I am so sorry that people have been rude to you! I agree that people seem to feel particularly free to speak their minds around pregnant women, and most people don’t think before they speak.

      Poco, I’m five months and I wear obvious maternity clothes. I have a very large baby belly and im quite shorty. When’s told that I’m pregnant, I can’t even tell you how many people say ‘I didn’t know you were pregnant!’ It’s so rude. I cry nearly every time. Maybe my body is distributing the weight differently, I don’t know.

    Quite frankly, I’m tired of this narcisstic non-celebrity whining about her pregnancy. Does being pregnant make her special? I’m assuming she chose to get pregnant (“more attention for me!”), and I, for one, am not hanging on to every word that comes out of her mouth.

    • Heather

      I don’t think it’s fair to assume she chose to get pregnant for attention. Let’s not cast aspersions on that — we don’t know her life or her intentions. She’s just answering the questions people ask her, and frankly, she is actually CORRECT to be offended at the way the media is treating her body right now.

      As someone said on Twitter, it’s a bad day for the press when its behavior means you AGREE with something Kim Kardashian has said… but there we are.

        I concede that we don’t know her reasons for getting pregnant, and I wholeheartedly agree that the media shouldn’t be critical of ANY pregnant woman’s body, but let’s face it. This is a woman who tweeted pictures of herself in a bikini on a daily basis last year.

      yeah, that’s the part that’s insane. (a) that she LETS him dictate that to her and (b) maternity clothes exist for a reason. Some of them are terrible. Some of them are awesome. All of them would be more comfortable than this.

      ALSO, maternity clothes help you look pregnant instead of, hmm, fleshier. I was not small to start with, and could get away with some of my non-maternity clothes while pregnant. But whenever I was wearing normal clothes people didn’t think I was pregnant, just fatter. In maternity clothes everyone talked constantly about how awesome I looked. I think she’s got some of that going on in some of these outfits. They don’t fit because they aren’t designed for pregnant proportions!

          Yeah, this camp. I basically disregard any female celebrity’s claims that their male partner “dresses” them or dictates their clothes. I think that person may from time to time evidence a point of view or a preference for this dress over that or whatever, but I have a very hard time believing that they truly dictate or have control over what their partner is wearing. I think it’s just a case of hyperbole, which then gets repeated on blogs etc. (I’m looking at you, Mrs. Timberlake.)

    I just feel bad that Kim feels the need to try and shove her pregnant body into clothes that make her look extremely uncomfortable– and she probably is uncomfortable, but the way she’s dressing is making it worse. One my favorite looks is the diamond print maxi dress with the leather jacket, just because it’s cute and doesn’t seem like it’s too much work. There are some other recent pictures of her in black pants/white shirt/black flats combo that looks a hell of a lot of more comfortable, relaxed and flattering than most of what she’s wearing in this slideshow! Kim, you can be pregnant and still look good! Please stop squeezing yourself into tight, uncomfortable clothes and heels!

    I actually kind of like the first dress…it looks comfy and I love a comfy maxi dress. Maybe pull the sleeves up and get a better color?
    Also, I wish she would wear all of her maternity wear as non-maternity wear. All of those pencil skirts and leather dresses etc would look ten times better than her normal attire.
    I like some of these, and I appreciate that she’s trying to look better, but at the same time, it makes me feel sad that we don’t live in a world where pregnant celebrities are allowed to just wear some goddamn sweatpants without People saying they’re going on a downward spiral.

        Hmm. But is that really true? Do we live in a world where we attack a celebrity or a pregnant celebrity for wearing sweatpants? Mila Kunis wears sweatpants all the time, and I don’t really notice any shade getting thrown her direction. I don’t remember seeing a pregnant celebrity photographed wearing sweats, and certainly don’t remember seeing a pregnant celebrity taking heat for wearing comfy clothes.

        Honestly, I think most people recognize that celebrities are sometimes photographed running errands in shlubby clothes, just like the rest of us. I have never noticed a particular public backlash or collective criticism of it.

    The thing that kills me about her wardrobe choices is that she has the resources to do so much better. She has money and access to people who can help her choose really great clothes, not just for maternity dressing, but for her wardrobe in general. Her bad choices are not limited to maternity wear, as we know from her repeated appearances in Fug Madness.

    I never understand it when celebrities look so awful. If I had money and people, I’d be making sure I got good advice.

    I had the WORST heartburn when I was preggers. Now, just looking at what she is forcing over her poor baby is making it come back. If there is ever a time in a womans life that comfort should be word one, pregnancy is that time. I hope she stops shopping in the plus size section, and finds maternity wear, soon!

    I feel really bad for her, because she’s still at that stage of pregnancy where your belly is not round and cute and easily identified as with baby, but rather where you just look thick and bloated and “I just finished the buffet at Shoney’s”. It’s not a fun stage. Plus, she’s short and has big boobs, so it just makes her look squat and undefined. The tabloids need to lay off – she’s gestating, for God’s sake. But, I cannot understand why she’s wearing those tight skirts and pants. When I was pregnant (twice now), I couldn’t stand having anything touch my belly. It got to the point in the last trimesters where I wore dresses almost exclusively.

    Is it my imagination or is she looking more like Kourtney as her pregnancy progresses? Some of those photos, I had to look closely at her face to make sure it was Kim.

    Also I kind of liked that first dress. It at least looked comfortable, although my breasts got the sympathy ache just looking at hers. Ouch.

    Those pants with the peplum should be burned, quickly. Those are awful.

    It is time, Kim, to embrace maternity clothing.

    I read somewhere that You Know Who doesn’t want you to wear maternity wear. For all of us, Kim: tell him to go F himself. If it is really true that he is being a dick about what you wear WHILE YOU ARE GESTATING HIS CHILD and you are giving in to him and being incredibly uncomfortable every day in those tight clothes WHILE YOU ARE GESTATING HIS CHILD, you may have more troubles than sore boobs and constant peeing.

    It is time, Kim, to embrace maternity clothing.

    Look, I know it’s mean to rag on a pregnant woman for getting larger than she’d like. But, regardless of what Kim’s attested, I believe her body is 70% altered, as in implants, injections, etc. As a naturally curvy woman, I know how hard it is to look slim but in her case, since she’s plastic, I feel free in passing judgement b/c she elected to look so extreme. It’s like a sort of Karma for not being satisfied with your natural self.

    Plus, doesn’t it seem like she’s gaining at quite a pace?

    And finally, YOU HAVE MONEY. HAVE SOMEONE MAKE YOU UNIQUE/HIP MATERNITY CLOTHES IF YOU REALLY CAN’T BRING YOURSELF TO SHOP AT MOTHERHOOD MATERNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. INVEST IN A DECENT BRA WHILE YOU’RE AT IT.

      Sometimes, your body just gains weight or bloats or shifts around. Who are we to judge how much weight she has gained or what her figure looks like? She is pregnant. Sheesh. I’m five months pregnant, have gained five pounds and can’t fit in my normal bras, tops or pants. My body has gone wackadoo. I get snide comments from people because I don’t have the cute basketball bump and it hurts my feelings. I can’t change the look of my bump,

      That said, her clothes are horrible.

            If I gain 5lbs not even pregnant I can’t fit into my bras BUT I DO own several sizes to accommodate. I prefaced my judgement by stating that I myself am naturally curvy and can relate to any bloating making someone with my physique look enormous especially in the boob/butt area. But I also do not believe she is made of real parts thus I not have sympathy for her looking so large b/c her fake parts are getting pushed out so severely. Perhaps I am being harsh but if I didn’t believe she was made of plastic and botox, I wouldn’t be saying a damn word.

            She’s never been able to dress her body in a way that doesn’t make her look like a sausage in its casing. My main point was that she has money. A shit-ton of it that could be used towards a fabulous wardrobe or a personal shopper/stylist who knows how to emphasize her parts/belly in an amazing way preggo or not.

            There is no reason she needs to be wearing her old bras either.

      M, seeing this prompted me to Google before-and-afters, and wow. I’d thought Kim had altered only her face, and possibly her breasts, but no, it’s everything. Head to toe, a product of surgery. I’m kind of astonished that this degree of alteration is even possible, but I guess I shouldn’t be after seeing Heidi Montag.

      And, as with Heidi, and let’s throw in Nicki Minaj as well, I think Kim looked better before.

      I’m still not going to make fun of her for pregnancy weight gain, but I totally agree she should be having clothes made and wearing better bras.

    • Valerie

      I don’t think it’s OK to pass judgement on anybody, regardless of how much plastic surgery they’ve had. That’s really harsh. You’re saying she deserves to look bad pregnant, since she had so much plastic surgery, not cool, M. If you’re going to criticize her clothing choice, fine, that’s what we’re all here for. But leave it at that.

    I actually think the Ren Faire outfit is the best of the set, since it looks a comfortable drape over her belly unlike all the other snug-fitting get-ups she’s voluntarily squeezing herself into; I totally don’t get tight-fitting clothes while pregnant, because you’d outgrow it in like a week!

    Her trouble is not her pregnancy or the natural shape of her body. Her trouble is that she has terrible, terrible taste in clothes and lots of money with which to indulge it. She almost never wears anything that flatters her and she actually is quite beautiful. And would be more so if she troweled off 75% of the slap.

  53. Boogie Sprinkles

    I assume that since she is short and curvy that her figure would be hard to find maternity clothing for. I genuinely feel for her in that context. I have the opposite problem. I’m tall and no breasts or hips. Pants were impossible to find and most shirts assumed that my chest would get much larger than it did. I didn’t have the kind of money and other resources that she did and I still managed to not look ridiculous. A few things I had inspired a lot of compliments from random and a few questions from non-pregnant people as to where I got them. My point is that she has no excuse to look so horrible. It’s fine to show off the belly and want to wear stylish clothing, but what she is doing is the opposite of fine.

    Pregnant or not, she always selects clothes that are SO FRIGGIN’ TIGHT, and that ‘s never a flattering look on anyone.

    And being a card carrying curmudgeon, (kard karrying kermudgeon, in this kase), will she manage to get a divorce from the other guy first, before the second one’s baby is due? Perhaps her family doesn’t know any good lawyers. (chuckle)

    What I don’t understand is why everything she wears is so heavy and structured and fussed over. Girl is only in her early 30s but she dresses like an 80s society matron most of the time. I’m her age and I actually like looking like I’m still young and fun (because dammit I am! Get off my lawn!) rather than like I’m off to my latest hospital board luncheon.

    Aw, I love that first dress on her. She looks comfy and like a medieval maiden. I wish it wasn’t strapless, though — attached sleeves instead of armwarmers would be a better look.

    And those garnet-red stilettos in slide 4 are to die for.

    Thank you, Heather, for sticking up for her. This is the first site I’ve read anything at all nice about her pregnancy look.

    I never thought I’d find myself defending a Kardashian, but I’m a fellow pregnant lady (and a short, curvy girl too) and I’m feeling her pain. You go through your adult life and by the time you’re her age, you pretty much know how to dress for your body type. And then you’re pregnant and suddenly it’s like you’re in middle school again with this constantly changing body that you’re not quite sure how to dress. You’re going to get some misses. I would wear that Jane Austen dress every day until the end of my pregnancy, it looks super comfortable. Also, sign me up for Jane Austen camp, please.

    Well i agree that everyone needs to stop talking about Kim’s size right now. One group of people that can’t help talk her look though is EVERYONE who has EVER been pregnant. Your montage made clear to me that my overarching problem with her pregnancy clothes. What pregnant woman has ever want to wear leather over the majority of the body (I could stop here) that is so tight you can see her belly button (which is not poking out, but staying in). She appears to not like to take advice from Kourtney at all, but certainly her older sister could help her with more comfortable clothes that celebrate the body as oppose to those clothes that make past pregnant women everywhere say “Oh, honey!”

    She is just so incredibly *pretty* – I mean seriously, look at her FACE, it’s gorgeous – that it upsets me that much more than she dresses herself so poorly. I mean, maybe we’re all wrong, maybe she’s not miserably uncomfortable? I dunno. But it certainly looks that way.

    And yeah, I’ve been dreading the post-baby “3-WEEKS 80lbs LIGHTER!” articles she’s going to do. Blah. Being her seems absolutely exhausting.

    And speaking as someone who has had a miscarriage (with my 1st and only baby so far), shouldn’t be slowing down even just a *little* bit??? I know, she’s into her second trimester and miscarriages generally have nothing to do with mom’s activities – but i get nervous just seeing her jet halfway across the world every other day. I guess if it hasn’t happened to you and you’ve generally lived a pretty blessed life, it’s pretty easy to overlook that kind of thing. Anyway, regardless, I hope she finds it in herself to just *relax* and do what feels good. By month 8 or so, she’ll have to, won’t she?!

    So according to the Enquirer, Kim’s just gaining weight to fake a pregnancy while a surrogate has the baby. How do we feel about all this? I find it quite enjoyable especially as Kim gets the good parts of pregnancy (eating) without the bad (almost everything else.)

      I had read that she and Kanye were asking the Carters for advice on fake baby bump acquisition and deployment. BUT, the one thing about all that which I don’t quite jibe with is: I can’t IMAGINE Kim Kardashian would allow herself to gain weight if she WEREN’T pregnant, because she is so body-obsessed.

      • Zulk

        Totally. Other people think she is dressing badly on purpose for attention but there is dressing badly on purpose that’s kind of fun (see: Rita Ora) and then just dressing badly where you look like you don’t know what’s going on. I think it’s the latter.

    I feel she has the same issues as Lena Dunham though. I don’t think people would be making comments about her body/weight gain if she was dressing herself with any sense as too comfort and figure-flattery. I feel like she can’t have it both ways – don’t talk about my figure (though I’m only famous because of my figure) while I sausage myself into tan leather pencil skirts not designed for a pregnant woman. She defines “girl, that is not your dress” for 100% of her wardrobe.

    I’m a mom. My figure looks dreadful when I’m pregnant and I’m still trying to lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight as my youngest’s birthday approaches, but I made an effort to wear things that were appropriate.

    I have just read this (albeit in In Touch) about Kayne’s apparent love for McDonalds:”those fries/those fries/I have then in my eyes/that smooth apple pie. I kid you not –

    As to the post regarding her “maternity wear” – she looks atrocious. And it is not her weight that is the problem – because that happens to most pregnant people in the weirdest ways, and she has a tough figure to look great being pregnant – it is the bizarre way that she is drssing. There is no reason she cannot look good, or at a minimum, not so ridiculous (I suggest, for irony sake, Jessica Simpson maternity)

    I’ll say the one thing I always think regarding her clothes: please go up a size. As someone who is full-figured, I sympathize with wanting to wear the smallest size possible but when you look like you’ve stuffed yourself into a sausage casing its not a flattering look at all.

    Her major issue is finding the appropriate size and an appropriate bra – and perhaps stop wearing that awful beige/tan color because it’s flattering on no one.
